Question analysis: For tumors, if no distant metastasis is found, it does not mean that it does not exist. The lesion may be small and cannot be detected temporarily. Generally, in this case, the treatment methods adopted are surgery plus chemotherapy. The purpose of surgery is to remove the primary lesions, and the purpose of chemotherapy is to eliminate minor lesions.
Guide and suggestion: Therefore, chemotherapy is indispensable. If you give up chemotherapy, it is very likely that you will lose all your efforts before surgery. It should be persuaded to accept, although chemotherapy has more side effects, as far as the current situation is concerned, there is no better choice.
